Pandemic digital nomads jobs are rising in work from home era

pandemic digital nomads jobs are rising in work from home era

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

The rise of “digital nomads,” knowledge workers able to do their jobs from a rotating assortment of exotic locales — the beaches of Phuket, the suburbs of Cape Town, the cafes of Paris— took a big hit earlier this year as borders closed and cafes did too. Some nomads hunkered down, others scurried home. Startup Remote Year, founded in 2014 to facilitate such work-adventures, laid off most of its staff and suspended services, leaving some customers in the lurch (it was acquired this month by a Panama-based hotel company).But while digital nomads have for the most part been stuck in their own countries since then, there appear to be far more of them than ever before. After a survey of 3,457 U.S. adults conducted this July and August, MBO Partners, which provides services to independent professionals, estimated there were 10.9 million digital nomads in the U.S. this year versus 7.3 million in 2019, a 49% increase. To qualify as such, one has to change location at least three times a year, not just shuttle back and forth between a country house and a city place, and not move at an employer’s behest, said Steve King of Emergent Research, who helped design the survey. …

Looks Like Jeep Might Want to Lead the Digital Nomad Movement With the Ger

looks like jeep might want to lead the digital nomad movement with the ger

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:


What we have here is the next niche project to hit the internet, although it may be 10 years too soon. This project is called the Jeep Ger / D-nomad Hub, and is from the mind of one B.K. Kang, an automotive student from Seoul, South Korea, you know, the cool Korea.The idea is based on the Mongolian ger. If you don’t know what a ger is, they’re also known as yurts. Still nothing? Ok. Let me help you out. A yurt or ger is a sort of mobile home use by nomadic tribes in the Mongolian and some Asian regions. It usually includes some beams of wood for a frame and a sort of top layer with some insulation to protect the interior against the elements.
The Jeep Ger is a similar device. However, it is set up using two separate systems, the vehicle, and a central hub. Let’s start with the central hub as it’s a lot simpler than the Jeep. The hub acts more like a terminal where people come and acquire their Ger, or simply need to replenish one thing or another. Its layout is very similar to that of an airport …

Europe’s startups battle Airbnb for digital nomad market

europe’s startups battle airbnb for digital nomad market

BEGIN ARTICLE PREVIEW:

Last week, Flatio and NomadX, two of Europe’s largest rental platforms focused on the mid-term rental market, announced they were merging, as the companies looked to better position themselves to fend off Airbnb and others in the battle for the rapidly expanding market. 
Mid-term rentals — which are generally anything from a month to a year — have long been seen as a prime area for growth. Even before the pandemic, people were increasingly moving away from the office, with more than 30% of employed people working from home at least part of the time in Sweden, Finland and the Netherlands, according to Eurostat. Meanwhile, research from law firm MBO partners suggests that the number of digital nomads in the US alone could climb from 7.3m in 2019 to 10.9m this year.  
And the pandemic has done little to halt the rise of the mid-term rental sector. Flatio recorded a 20% growth in bookings year-on-year during the first nine months of 2020, and a 100% revenue increase in key cities.
